Day 63, March 4

Yesterday I wrote about the beauty found in a clump of grass.  I could have easily overlooked it.  I fear that I have overlooked many such vignettes of beauty because my mind was cluttered with the busy-ness of life.

It is good to be busy.  Good to be productive and of value.  However, when I allow that busy-ness of life to blind me to the world the Lord has created, I fear that I am beleaguered in the importance of unimportant things.

Finding beauty is not so much a process of discovering it in out-of-way places but of recognizing what already surrounds us, such as   stumbling upon the first crocus of spring struggling to break through a layer of snow.

So, for today, I am grateful for unexpected bits of beauty.
